The shooting of the new campaign Spring/Summer 2020 took place in the middle of the Rub’ al-Khali, one of the largest sand deserts in the world, surrounded by sand dunes and scorching hot sun. GOLDEN HOUR is a true homage to the unparalleled and almost magical light in the desert – early in the morning after the sun has come up, and in the evening just before sundown. Guided by the sun, light and shadows are in constant interaction. This is also reflected in the new collection: The colors and prints of the collection harmonize perfectly with the surroundings. Materials like cotton, linen, cupro, and Lyocell meet handmade airy weaves and structured materials.
Inspired by the sand and earth tones of the desert and the light of the sun, the colors range from beige and terracotta to yellow, red, and blue. Accents of fresh colors like pink, grapefruit, purple, and shades of green reflect an exotic oasis. The prints mirror the beautiful natural scenery. Caftans and loose-cut pants are reminiscent of Bedouin garments.
NEW THIS SPRING!
The Loungewear collection can be perfectly color combined with the respective day and nightwear, so that individual outfits can be put together from all three categories. A real fashion statement: pajama pants and tops can be worn as ready-to-wear outfits.
What is your best memory of our spectacular shoot in Abu Dhabi? We asked the team for their personal highlights:
NASTYA / MODEL
Every time we have a shoot in a natural location and I put on a Hanro piece, I just merge with it. The loungewear is so comfortable that, even though I am on set, I feel at home..
ROBERTAS / MODEL
The location in a desert was absolutely stunning! The thing that stuck in my mind the most was how delightful the HANRO garments felt even in the scorching heat. They were light and luxurious, a bit like a desert breeze.
EVA / HAIR & MAKE UP ARTIST
... from the sunrise in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by still, untouched sand dunes ... the golden tones of the desert & well sounds on my ears #teamlove“.

The fine, warm sand under your feet and the sun becoming a glowing ball of fire that paints a fascinating light in the haze of the desert.

The morning shoot in the beautiful, never ending dune landscape! The team was fully ready to start, despite it being 48 C°, even with little dance performances!
